Maddux Steals His Way Into History

In the third inning of the Padres-Braves game yesterday, while trailing 1-0 to his former employer, Greg Maddux tried to make something happen. With one Jadeveon Clowney Jersey out, he singled from Charlie Morton, and proceeded to steal second base following the next retired batter. The inning would ultimately neglect to create a run for the Friars however the stolen base added another accomplishment to Gregs long hall of fame resume. At 42 many 89 days old, Maddux had become the oldest pitcher to steal a base, a mark previously held by Jim Kaat.
According to Greg they werent holding him on also it wasnt an i sue because, even if he was thrown out, the lineup had already been turned over. Plus, the Padres were can not score runs and, pitcher or no pitcher, he was a baserunner.
Greg has stolen eleven bases in the career while thrice being caught. He hasn't, however, failed in an effort because the 2000 season, going a perfect 7-7 since. Stealing one base in Brian Cushing Jersey every of the 2002, 2004, 2005, 2007, and 2008 seasons, Maddux actually stole two within the 2006 season; one while on the Cubs and something during Dodger blue. Here are the pitcher/catcher batteries unsucce Christian Covington Jersey sful in preventing the speedy profe sor:
2002: Tomo Ohka/Michael Barrett2004: Jason Marquis/Mike Matheny2005: Jae Seo/Ramon Castro2006: Matt Cain/Eliezer Alfonzo AND Chris Young/Mike Piazza2007: Jeff Francis/Yorvit Torrealba2008: Charlie Morton/Brian McCann
He has pitched fairly well this year3.90 ERA/3.92 FIPand his in-season Marcel projects him to obtain better still over his next 12-15 starts. Still, this can be his final season and I would not be surprised whatsoever if he finds himself in a new uniform prior to the trading deadline. A contending team likely wouldn't need to part with a top-tier prospect for his services and teams could do far worse than plug him in as a # Vince Wilfork Jersey 3 or #4 starter. The Padres have been a serious disappointment this year after coming within one bet on the playoffs in 2007; it would do them well to operate towards a sembling an offense capable enough of preventing pitchers from feeling that if they do not steal bases, they will not be batted in.
